Withdrawal from Course/College

A student may voluntarily withdraw from Bryan College of Health Sciences at any time.

Reasonable efforts are made to assist the student in completing the program. However, the faculty have the authority to request the withdrawal from the College of any student at any time when such action is deemed to be in the best interest of the College or of the student.

Withdrawal Policy

A student who wishes to drop a course after the first week of the semester must withdraw from the course. The student must complete a "Request to Drop/Add a Course" and submit it to Records and Registration. If a student withdraws from a course before the end of the twelfth week of the semester, a grade of "W" (withdrawal) is recorded on the transcript. A withdrawal is not computed in the grade point average.

Students who find it necessary to withdraw from a course after the twelfth week of the semester or after the completion of blocked clinical requirement for a course must petition the Dean of the students program for permission to withdraw. If approved to withdraw, the student will receive a WP (withdraw passing) or a WF (withdraw failing) on the transcript, dependent upon the student’s grade in the course (class or clinical) at the time of withdrawal. A WP or WF is not computed in the grade point average.

If a student withdraws after the twelfth week or completion of blocked clinical requirements for a course and does not petition for a WP or WF, the course grade will be assigned based on work completed to date with a grade of zero assigned for work not completed. This may result in a failing grade. The failing grade will be included in the grade point average. A WF in a course will count as a failure and may impact progression.

Withdrawal deadlines for summer terms or sessions less than a full semester follow a prorated tuition refund and withdrawal schedule. Prorated schedules are available in Records and Registration.

Withdrawal from all Courses

A student who withdraws from all courses prior to the end of the twelfth week of the semester must complete the "Request to Withdraw" form to avoid receiving an automatic F in all courses. All College property must be returned prior to withdrawal, and arrangements must be made for meeting financial obligations. A student seeking to withdraw after the twelfth week of the semester must petition the Dean of the appropriate school for permission to withdraw; the student will not be allowed to withdraw unless permission is granted.

In addition, the College may require withdrawal of a student for medical reasons. Students will be sent a letter informing them of the withdrawal and the reason for the action. Administrative withdrawal is a neutral action and should not be considered as negative or of a disciplinary nature. The official date of withdrawal will be determined by the last date of attendance for an enrolled student, or the first date of the term for students that failed to start classes as scheduled.
